Super Gay Movie Review: Stud Life directed by @campbellx

STUDLIFE 7Have you ever seen a movie that you’d heard of and wanted to see but kinda gave up seeing it, only to run across it on Netflix and love it? Really? Me, too!
So it’s the Sunday night after Stonewall Pride. It’s still wet outside so, I am inside where any good girl should be. I’d spotted Stud Life a few days ago and brought it up to the missus. Well, she let me know, in no certain terms, that she is not in any way interested in watching this movie. OK.
Lucky for me she decided to hit the hay early. Time to get my flick!
Stud Life was really, really good. Campbell X had been praised when this movie hit the festival circuit and I now know why. The cast was phenomenal. T’Nia Miller, Kyle Treslove and Robyn Kerr have amazing chemistry and carry the story, beautifully, from beginning to end. I even enjoyed the music…and we all know that can be a deal breaker in lesbian movies.
My two cents, ok…eleven cents.

KListen: @JessicaBetts “Holding On” #LLcoolJess

291501_194126950652127_5182171_oTwo words: Jessica Betts.

swoon

Now I know some of y’all are squinting at the screen trying to figure how you know that name and that face…. that face.

Jessica Betts was the winner of  Mona Scott-Young (pre-Love and Hip Hop) and Missy Elliot’s reality show, Road To Stardom, back in the day.

Check out youtube for some clips if you want but I can sum up her performances for you pretty simply. Her voice was so soulful and sultry that you didn’t know whether you wanted to slide to church or slide in some… never mind. (Fine Judge Me!)

She seemed to slip off the mainstream radar for a few years after that, coming back in 2012 with this powerhouse jam, “Holding On”.  I still remember the first time I saw this video. I watched with my mouth gaped open and my pearls clutched lol.

Did I say swoon already? Well just in case … swoon.

Take a look. Take a listen. What do you think? Continue reading KListen: @JessicaBetts “Holding On” #LLcoolJess

KListen: Mark Ronson feat. Amy Winehouse – “Valerie”

After my obsession with the last KListen song, QueenS by The Satisfaction, there was only one place I could go. I love this song and actually sang it loud and proud on the way into the office today. In case you missed the title of the post, I was crooning along with Amy Winehouse to “Valerie”.

Let me say this before I say another thing, I knoooooow this wasn’t originally written about a woman by a woman. But once Amy sang the first note it became a lesbian song  for a lot of us… or at least for me.

The video is an interesting one. Though Amy was still alive she wasn’t on the video set. Unfortunately, it seemed like a precursor to her untimely demise. Instead, we get to enjoy a bevy of beauties lip-synching for their lives.

RIP Amy.

Take a look. Take a listen. What do you think? Continue reading KListen: Mark Ronson feat. Amy Winehouse – “Valerie”

#SuperGayShorts Film Reviews: Tracks directed by Deana Williams

Once upon a time, there was a young runaway named Julie who lived in the forest. One day, the dashing and athletic Tasha walks into Julie’s outdoor hideaway. It’s a classic love story: boi meets boi. Julie and Tasha share a pure, first true love but will they be able to hang on to it?

Tracks,  by Deana Williams, explores the less than perfect love story of two less than perfect girls. Julie has a strained relationship with her mother. Tasha was sent to live with her grandmother, a fervent Bible beater, until she “changes her ways”.  Both girls seem to find the home they’re looking for in each other. This movie explores a moment in time that will resonate through the lives of Julie and Tasha forever. Continue reading #SuperGayShorts Film Reviews: Tracks directed by Deana Williams

KListen: Thee Satisfaction (@stasandcat) – QueenS #WorldPride

Seattle-based duo, Thee Satisfaction’s music has been described as “funk-psychedelic feminista sci-fi epics”. Members Cat and Stasia are not only partners in music, but also in love and life.  They have created several BANGING mixtapes since their 2008 debut, “The Weird” and released an EP in 2012 called “awE naturalE”.

Have you ever had a song that you knew you were feeling, but once you saw the video you fell into full-fledged love? That’s how I feel about this week’s KListen of their song “QueenS”.

Directed by dream hampton, the video for QueenS is simply EPIC. I am still feeling the effects of its subtle sensory overload. Beautiful women … rich textiles… textured tresses. My head is still nodding and my body still swaying to the beat though the song has long stopped playing.

I am crossing fingers and toes that I can check them out during Toronto pride. They will be performing at the Black Weirdo x bklyn boihood x 88 Days of Fortune: Toronto Pride Party @ Tattoo.
Take a look. Take a listen. What do you think?

Super Gay Movie Review of the Week: Imagine Me and You

imaginemeyouOl Parker’s film, Imagine Me and You , is a romantic comedy which sticks to the formula. Is it Oscar worthy? Not really but watching Lena Headley (sexy British, Game of Thrones and 300 lady) huff about, glowing with the heat of sexual frustration…well, that is enough to make this movie a winner!

Piper Perabo, who plays the bride Rachel, is her usual likeable and non-threatening self. Lena Headley (le sigh), plays Luce, the florist hired for the wedding. They make eye contact across the aisles of the ceremony and both are visibly shaken. I won’t give it away but let’s just say it’s love at first sight.

Looking for something cute and non-offensive for date night? Imagine Me and You is a good choice.
